    It was nothing like what I was expecting. I love Loni Love, but this book was kind of lackluster. I couldn't even finish.

Both of these books have garnered VERY rare 5 star reviews from me, but for VERY different reasons. I have to be honest, I don't feel that the book jacket description for this book serves it justice. I found Ms. Love's book to be incredibly insightful with advice that woman are starving for in today's world of our young women putting their future, financial and otherwise on the back burner. While I didn't find the book as funny as I thought it would be, she makes up with it with incredibly enlightening and empowering advice targeted towards our young women. I firmly believe that this is a book that should be read by all young women and if this is the type of advice she gives, her upcoming show will be a huge success. That isn't to say that this book isn't funny, but I found the advise given by her jaw dropping paramount to the humor. Ms. Love masterfully uses humor to support her very serious life advice masterfully. I will say it again...this book truly was not what I was expecting. I have to be honest...I was expecting a funny (come on, Loni Love is HILARIOUS), but pretty brainless written stand-up routines. I guess the old adage of "never judge a book by its cover" (or judge a comedian by her routine) applies here!

    This was a First Reads win from Goodreads, one of the handful I've won (think I'm up to five titles now over, um, maybe as many years?) I'm a bit behind on getting in my review of it, but I figure, better late than never. I love Loni Love. I've seen her on several of the I Love the 80s/90s/00s shows on VH1, plus I think I've caught her on a few other shows of that ilk.

Of course, you never get all of her on those shows, as she's not allowed to swear. Her book? It's her rules, so the potty mouth comes out. But it's all good, as it's spot-on advice told it a no-nonsense way. It's like having your best girlfriend over to set you straight, the one who will always tell you if your outfit makes you look fat - that sort of friend. I really did like this book. I'm not sure how many library patrons I could recommend it to, due to the language. I mean, it's not that raunchy, but still...blue enough that I know quite a few people who would look at me a lot differently when they brought it back. I still say it's funny, and honestly, it's very good advice. Simple, really - put yourself first. Don't let a man - any man - treat you like dirt. Don't let him cheat on you, don't let him put you down, don't let him bully you, and don't you dare let him hit you. Who can't get behind that sort of advice? Have respect for yourself, and make sure the men in your life, romantic or otherwise, do too. This is her first book, and I hope it's not her last. I'll be looking for another one from her - soon, I hope!

    I laughed my way through this book in just a few short hours. Filled to the brim with no nonsense advice about dating and love, Love tells it like it is. Written in a style that combines a straight narrative with an old school advice column, Love covers every aspect of relationships from courtship to marriage. My favorite bits were when she incorporated a real life example to illustrate points that she made. Whether or not these examples were actually true were not relevant to me.

Miss Love shares the gift of her wisdom, valuable insight and advice, guaranteed to make readers laugh out loud! Miss Love was crowned "Little Miss Detroit" in 1972, and has since then been inspired towards entertainment/comedy when she realized she could make people laugh. After she lost her best friend in a drive by shooting, she was determined make a difference by encouraging women to make better choices when it came to their men and personal lives. Women do not need to put up with "second rate treatment" and "Never be a side dish, always be the main course", this simple basic advice she learned from her mother. Miss Love advises her readers on nearly every subject, her chapters include: Meeting up, Hooking up, Moving in, Breaking up, Making up, Cheating, Friends and Family, Getting Hitched, Messy Messy Messes. I enjoyed the personal stories she added about her "Cousin Skillet", "Cousin Dinky", "Flirty Frank", her beau's: "Clarence/ Kilroy", also her fondness for Dr. Drew, urging her readers to save (some) of their darkest confessions for Dr. Phil. The boxes outlined through out the book offer a quick reference. For example: * LL's Guide To Your Man's True Nature * LL's Guide To Men's Faulty Hearing * LL's Living Together Deal Breakers * LL's Signs He's Not Looking For A Wife * LL's Top Five Reasons Not To Be The Girl On The Side * LL's Guide For Getting His Mother To Like You * LL's Top Five Getaways To Rekindle The Flame Miss Love demonstrates that anyone can have a mutually satisfying and happy relationship/marriage as long as women value and respect themselves first and foremost, even if they don't feel like sharing the remote. Many thanks to Simon & Shuster for sponsoring the Goodread's Giveaways where I won this terrific book:)

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I LOVE Loni Love! I first was introduced to her on the Bethenny (sp?) Talk Show last year. She was so good that she basically STOLE the show. She Now appers on THE REAL w/ several younger women. When she offers love advice, it is light-hearted yet intelligent, something you can relate to, and often funny. This book was unintelligent in places, just all-over-the-place. Set up like Q&A [in different categories] but was/felt scripted to get her comedy routine in or the funny in. Problem was the fun I LOVE Loni Love! I first was introduced to her on the Bethenny (sp?)

Set up like Q&A [in different categories] but was/felt scripted to get her comedy routine in or the funny in. Problem was the funny wasn't funny to me. The items in boxes between chapters or Q&As seemed the funniest. To be honest, I would have liked a memoir better. Or real questions from real people with her real take with some funny mixed in. That was actually what I thought it was going to be. As it stands now, it is too over the top and not to my liking. Find that crazy cuz I love me some Loni Love! As I have seen Loni on TV (Bethenny and The Real), I totally enjoy her! On the Real, she is one of the most real, honest, funny, cool ladies on the show. So when I heard she had a book out I didn't wait a minute. I was sorely disappointed. I didn't finish parts of the book. Frankly, I have other books to read. It is a shame, too. I hope she writes another with a bit more REAL-ness. I am not necessarily talking about the show but talking about HER or HER REAL Advice! 1 star

What is more important it is full not only of good advises, but also small hints what is really important in life. But I am not going to tell you what - read it yourself! Honestly I would recommend it to everybody - not only sad single ladies after the breakup (both sexes), good girls after few years of marriage when they believe all good is behind. Also crazy mothers (often at the verge of nervous breakdown) not sure what (within law) to do with their teenagers and especially to many men here and there. Big boys - you need to watch out, as all your sins have been seen! Now it's time to start new life and forget about misbehaving (maybe just a little bit ... from time to time)!

    Loni Love comedian gives us her hilarious advice on love and life. I like the way Loni gives sound advice by referring to her experiences and the advice she herself got from Momma Love. The story would have been more enjoyable for me I think if Loni had gone deeper into her own life story. The book did end on a somewhat personal note but I wanted more. I usually read fiction but made a decision for 2020 to read a little outside my comfort zone. One down!

    Love Him or Leave Him (But Don't Get Stuck with the Tab) is written by the sassy African-American friend we've all been waiting for, Loni Love. I first saw her as a guest DJ on one of my many Ellen DeGeneres show binges (wanna see my favorite clip? Click here!)I basically have that clip memorized, as her humor is so blunt and direct. She reminds me so much of one of my all-time role models, Lucille Ball, but much more modern and sassy. I've read quite a few memoirs of famous comedians (Tina Fey, Love Him or Leave Him (But Don't Get Stuck with the Tab) is written by the sassy African-American friend we've all been waiting for, Loni Love.

She reminds me so much of one of my all-time role models, Lucille Ball, but much more modern and sassy. I've read quite a few memoirs of famous comedians (Tina Fey, Mindy Kaling, and Ellen's is in the "to-read" pile) Loni started out as an engineering major, but decided to pursue comedy instead. I have so much more respect for college educated women to enter the entertainment business, because these women have SMART humor. Love's book is no exception, except her book certainly targets a completely different audience than Fey, Kaling, and DeGeneres. She starts out every chapter with a brief introduction to a topic regarding relationships including break-ups, hook-ups, and everything in between. Then, she would respond to "Dear Abby"-esque questions (I don't know if she made them up, or if real women asked the questions, or what). Finally, she would come up with a list of truths (kind of like my list of truths I wrote about last night-sorry, enough with the shameless plugs) related to said topic. I would absolutely give Ms. Love a 5/5, EXCEPT she gave some advice that I think she needs to seriously rethink the way she phrased the answer: Dear Loni, My boyfriend and I have been living together for two weeks and I have yet to see him totally naked. He always has a towel around him, or he's under the sheets, or the lights are out. How do I get him to be more open with me? Signed, Wonder What He's Hiding Dear Wonder, …your boyfriend is probably just shy. If you really want to check out his goodies, make him a double martini and wait until he passes out. Then you can look all you want. I'm just going to stop there to point out the (what I see as) OBVIOUS mistake Love chose when writing this! Loni, dear-do you realize that while making a seemingly hilarious joke about seeing a man's privates, you also suggested date rape? To Loni's (sort of, I guess) defense, rape culture is everywhere, especially in the entertainment industry (Blurred Lines, anyone?) I know Loni is a smart woman, and the rest of her book is chock full of fantastic, empowering advice for younger women. However, I was really turned off when I read that piece. I'd like to think she wasn't intending date rape when writing this and we're all supposed to laugh along with the joke. The thing is, I'm not laughing. So, I'm so sorry Loni dear, I have to knock off a star. Fabulous read, otherwise! Definitely ranks with the other celebrity memoirs!

    This was a really nice way to end 2013. I discovered Loni Love on Chelsea Lately. I loved how she doesn’t put up with any of Chelsea’s shit and her stories always make me laugh. She seems like a hot mess, and yet she totally has it together. She always comes across as super confident and you can tell that she has too many important things to do than deal with stupid people.

She’s the friend you’d go to when you want to know the truth, not get complimented. Apparently women approach her all the time like they are BFFs. There’s something about her that makes people think they know each other. After standup shows, they wait for her in the bathroom or hang out at the meet and greet and then ask really personal questions. Lots of TMI. But they know Love isn’t going to bullshit them, so if they spill the details, she’s going to speak the truth. When you have this much power, you write a book. I for real lol’d several times when reading this. She covers all aspects of dating and love. First dates to throwing a man out of your house. Recovering from dating disasters to dealing with his baby momma. Figuring out how to handle an unexpected hook up to dealing with your man’s stupid friends. It’s all in here. The best part is that there are seriously out there questions, like can I sleep with my mom’s ex-husband (No. Unless you trade her one of your exes.) and then there are things just about all women deal with like what to do when you don’t think you want to get married. Or do want to get married. The absolutely best part of this book is that Love has a story for everything. Either she’s dealt with it herself or has a friend or family member who has been through it. She details her own disasters and lays everything on the table. You really do feel like you’re BFFs. This book feels like you’re hanging out with a hysterical and honest friend. Yeah, she’s going to tell you to stop fucking around, but she’s going to help you get drunk while you discuss it. Also, there will probably be pancakes. If you’re looking for a quick and fun read, grab this book. If you’re a fan of Loni Love and haven’t read this yet, you will not be disappointed. Although she had help writing it, it is 100% her voice. I didn’t need the audio version to feel like she was reading it to me. I couldn’t be happier with this being the last book I read in 2013!

Simon & Schuster was kind enough to provide, through NetGalley, a copy of this eGalley for the purposes of reading and reviewing it.

Somehow, I might not be the target audience for this book. :) But at the same time, it is always nice to see what advice is being given to the fairer sex. That said, this book was hilarious. Admittedly, I knew who Loni Love was, but wasn’t really familiar with her career or stand-up routine until reading this book. She’s definitely someone I find very amusing. The premise of this book is simple: ladies, don’t let yourself be taken advantage of. But what I also like is that Love doesn’t make it appear that a woman should be the center of a relationship, just an equal partner. At one point, she doles out the following advice: “If you want your man, respect your man”. Exactly. And she makes it abundantly clear it’s a two-way street. But the real catch of this book is the manner Love dishes out her advice. The format is much like an advice column, where Love poses a question from a woman and then replies in her own inimitable style. This is done in a very laid back, comical manner that is straight to the point. She also provides many real-world examples, many of which I presume are fabricated, to make her point. So if you want some great, no-nonsense advice about life and relationships, this is definitely your book. It’s a rocking, rolling, hilarious, and quick read from one end to the other. Rating: 5 stars (out of 5)

    Two snaps up for this comedic book and great advice from one of America's top female comedians, Loni Love. This woman is a complete fool, and I mean that in the most kindest regards. Loni is absolutely brilliant in her book and what she advises women is definitely golden. I laughed so hard at the questions women asked her that I couldn't just read without stopping--I had to bookmark my Kindle page, while engaging in bust-your-gut-type of laughter. OMG, I was in tears this book was so damn funny, Two snaps up for this comedic book and great advice from one of America's top female comedians, Loni Love.

Girlfriend has it going on in the advice area, and what I love about her is that we are definitely on the same damn page. She's truly awesome! But I have to say, my all-time favorite part of the book, which there are so many sections I absolutely loved, but the story she told about "embarrassing moments" and what happened at her "romantic dinner" date, I think I laughed for a good twenty minutes and I still couldn't read the next paragraph because the visual she gave of what happened that night I am still laughing about it. OMG that was so f*cking hilarious, I cried. In fact, thinking back on it, I'm still laughing. I don't want to give anything away here. Definitely READ THIS BOOK, especially if you are a woman, looking for great advice with comedy mixed in, you've got to give Loni a try. Downright hilarious! I may read this again just for the hell of it. What a Great Read!!!!

A surprising amount (or what felt like half of them) were people fessing up to cheating on their significant other, or how someone witnesses their friend's other half cheating. This book was pretty much a compilation of 'Dear Loni, I need advice letters'. Loni's responses were amusing to read. Some were humble with a funny zing at the very end. A lot were her personal (humiliating) stories, a small amount were about people she knew. Loni would also give advice via lists. She really loves making lists (who doesn't?). Some made for good laughs but most just became too unrealistic for advice. This book is a quick read. A good amount is humorous (the advice that involves an embarrassing story, flying wigs!), a tiny amount is old school (a man should always pay for dinner even if the woman offers to pay or go Dutch), but most of it is shocking (or not shocking depending on how jaded you are) on how many cheaters there are! If you want some fun reads pick up this book. If you have doubts about your significant other's integrity this book will make you suspicious ;P

    Loni Love tells it like it is. I mostly know of her from her appearances on Chelsea Lately and various VHI shows. She has great presence and is one funny lady! With her trademark blend of humor and good solid common sense advice she helps women deal with their real romantic issues. Much of her advice comes from things her own mother, "Momma Love" taught her. Her advice is based on the fact that women need to put themselves first and then their relationships.

The title pretty much sums up her whole approach. Do what is best for you and make sure you don't get stuck with the tab, an STD, a baby, or any other relationship consequence. I'm not really one for advice book, but this one is a winner! It nicely balances serious real advice with funny stuff.

    I admit it: I had no idea who Loni Love was before I saw her on The Talk. After that, I kind of loved her so when she promoted her book: Love Him or Leave Him, I immediately asked my local library for it. Love Him or Leave Him reminds me of He's Just Not That into You. It's honest and unflinching, not to mention, funny. It has her signature sort of sarcastic humour and her everlasting love of bacon. I enjoyed it because underneath that bacon love is honest and practical advice about love and insi I admit it: I had no idea who Loni Love was before I saw her on The Talk.

    I enjoyed this relationship book. It's definitely tongue in cheek but she keeps her advice real. She uses a Dear Loni, advice column type format throughout the book. I really liked that and I enjoyed reading her responses. All of her topics came accompanied with lists. I enjoyed those lists, they were my favorite part of reading her book. The book is humorous of course but it never really made me laugh out loud. One thing I really respected about the advice that she doled out on the pages is tha I enjoyed this relationship book.

One thing I really respected about the advice that she doled out on the pages is that she never condoned unfaithfulness in a relationship no matter how the letter writer presented their situation. I enjoyed this enough to recommend it and to read it again.

    I am a big fan of Loni Love from the show The Real, who knew that she had skills giving advice or writing a really helpful book. I am giving this book a four; Ms. Love gives great advice to those of us who need it. However, it is not just advice, but it's funny and extremely practical. The book is a charmer and the cover is so beautiful with Loni dressed in red. I would certainly recommend this book to family members and friends, there is even a broader audience for those who like the show - The I am a big fan of Loni Love from the show The Real, who knew that she had skills giving advice or writing a really helpful book.

I really enjoyed the book and for those who think it's worth a read, you will too. Enjoy!!

    I love love Loni Love. I think she's super fun, and smart. I always knew she was an engineer before turning to comedy, but you read more about that in the book. I think my biggest problem with the book is that it is an advice book that really does not give much advice. The answers do not fit the questions. However, she is a comedian. Her job is to make you laugh, and that she does. However, some of her advice is straight-on. For example, if a man does not appreciate your hard-earned money enough I love love Loni Love.

    Funny. Loni Love had me in laughing out loud. Yet her advice is serious and makes a lot of sense (if you want to be choked, date a wrestler; at least he'll know when to stop). The true is women, including myself. will do, tolerate and ignore the red flags for love. Loni gets down to business and reminds us that we should come first in a relationship or we will get stuck with the tab. Her advice is funny and useful. And of course, it's helpful to have cousins who can make your date's life misery Funny. Loni Love had me in laughing out loud.

    I received this book free from Net Galley in exchange for a review. I absolutely love Loni Love and her new book held my expectations. While the version I received was an unedited version and had a lot of mistakes, I was able to stumble through. The gist I got was a hilarious romp through the trials and tribulations of Loni Love's life. I laughed out loud several times and would highly recommend this book!!

    I received this book as part of the Goodreads giveaway. I gave this book three stars because I thought some of the information was a "no brainer". However, it may be more useful for younger women. The book was well written which made for a quick read. I did find myself laughing throughout the book and there is some valuable advice that all women should hear and think about before entering into a relationship.

    Unlike some of her comic contemporaries, Loni Love manages to perfectly translate her sense of humor to the page. That's helped here by the advice format of the book, in which she is answering questions about love and relationships. Though the advice predictably skews heteronormative, you could apply it and her common sense principles to most types of relationships. The listicles were a fun way to break things up, and advice is arranged by topic if you are looking for something in particular.
